    Well poop. I didn't even notice. Guess that's what I get for messing with him in the middle of the night!

    I've begun painting my Optimus Prime and will post pics eventually. Not trying to go for the hyper realistic look, but I do want to finish all the missing paint apps from the Hasbro version. I'm about to order the Molotow Chrome pens as well. Hopefully it turns out nice!

    Decided to plunge into this line. I’ve been pretty faithful in collecting studio series so far, and I will continue to do so since it will be eons before MPMs catch up. But after seeing Megatron and Jazz, and now Starscream, I can’t resist any longer.

    decided to work on the older figures first- just ordered Bee and Prime off of a member here (sealed!), and also ordered barricade and Ironhide from Amazon.
    I know there’s plenty of complaints about these guys, and I know there’s third party or KO versions that improve upon things, and I’m sure figured like Bee and Prime will get upgrades later. But I like what I see regardless of that, and I’m super excited to have those figures in hand.
    Plenty of photos when they get here!

    Same. I've been pretty happy with the Studio Series but I was really itching to try something with a complicated transformation so I ordered Barricade, Jazz and Bee to test the waters. Barricade arrived first and I have not been able to keep my hands off of him since I opened the box so I'm really looking forward to the others arriving.

    Barricade was my first MPM too and I was the same way with him! Fantastic figure that led to me getting all the rest, aside from BB Movie Bee.

    Anyone know what size buildings would scale well with these guys (Prime and the Decepticons)? I'd love to have a city display sometime.

    You gotta figure, an average office floor is like 10ft, prime is supposed to be about 28ft.

    Depending on your scale for human figures, your building size would have to scale with those just as well (so if you’re preferred figure scale is 1:24, a building scaled to that size would work)

    For the carbots, 1cm=1ft, so around 4in is 10ft. This megaconstrux basketball rim is to scale (height wise) at ten ft...

    I thought about making an MPM scale Pyramid of Giza until I figured out that it would be 15ft tall and each side of the base would be 25ft long.
